Answer:

#3 * 2 - 6 div 3 = color(blue)4#

Explanation:

Following the PEDMAS rule
Division and Multiplication are done (from left to right) before Subtraction,
so
#color(white)("XXX")underbrace(3 * 2) - 6div 3#
becomes
#color(white)("XXX")6 -underbrace(6div3)#
then
#color(white)("XXX")underbrace(6-2)#
and finally
#color(white)("XXX")4#

2nd Multiplication: #3*2 = 6#
